Tottenham Hotspur defeated London rivals, West Ham in the Premier League on Tuesday night to boost their top four hopes.

After a goalless first half, Spurs got into the lead when Soucek diverted the ball into his net from a corner in the 64th minute.

England striker Harry Kane then scored the second goal from a Son assist, making his 200th league appearance for Spurs a memorable one.

With the 2-0 win, Spirs climb to seventh on the table, while defeat for West Ham keeps the side just above the relegation zone by goal difference.
